The notion of erotic pleasure, although it is related to the body, can be altered if that vision of the body is total, internal; if we put the brutality of the disease, the invisible internal degeneration before external beauty, the erotic experience is transmuted to another type of aesthetic experience.

This series explores the notion of disease and death in the times of the disproportionate cult of erotic beauty.

La noción de placer erótico, aunque está relacionada con el cuerpo, puede alterarse si esa visión del cuerpo es total, interna; si ponemos la brutalidad de la enfermedad, la degeneración interna invisible ante la belleza externa, la experiencia erótica se transmuta a otro tipo de experiencia estética.

Esta serie explora la noción de enfermedad y muerte en los tiempos del culto desproporcionado de la belleza erótica.
